Twitter...

One of my favorite people to follow on twitter is Russel Simmons...

Influental is not even the word.

Can we say AMAZING?
I normally dont get into to celeb tweets,unless they are talking directly to me,but I say I must have to take heed to his words,knowing that 30years ago he was a poor kid from Hollis.

I stumbbled upon a post this morning that hit so close to home it changed my morning.
So being the fact that I am the Rev Run of my circle,i sat in my bathtub and forwarded it those in my circle and those i know who may needed a morning pick me up.

"If u wanna be rich. Start from the inside. First u must. Cleamse the heart of poverty"-R.Simmons

After sending this message to my circle I got several responses....

"how do you change something that has been embeded in your heart for so long?"-N.J

"ive been poor all my life"-F.V.

...First off,just because you been poor all your life, and your 23doesnt mean you have to be poor the rest of your life.....You have to be the change you want.

Secondly,how do you get over a break up,or an abusive relationship????....
You and poverty are just that,an abusive unhealthy relationship.
You have to know when to end it,
So what are you doing to end the cycle of poverty for the rest of your life?


Get it out your heart.

"U are rich when u know the truth. When u live in the state of yoga. ! "The state of needing norhing"."-R.Simmons

A man who needs nothing has everything ....
I will be the first to tell you I need to know this lesson personally(dont believe me,peep the prior blog),but if you dont need much,then you have what you need.

If you have the bare essentials in life;food,water,shelter,heat,clothing....then who is to say you arent already rich?
Everything else in life is just extra,
WHo is to say your food has to be steak?Your shelter has to be a 8bedroom mansion?Your clothing has be Armani?

There is NO place for poverty,
Get out your heart...
In the words of B.Scott, Bitch.Boo.BYE!

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
